Rob Lyons put it best: In claiming that climate change is “the greatest challenge of our time,” global warming alarmists and the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have “delivered, it seems, with brass balls, (a message) that the science is settled, the debate is over, and everything must come second to tackling global warming.”


On a global scale, one would think that alleviating poverty, a lack of fresh drinking water, and the continued existence of terrible diseases (such as polio, malaria, and radical Islam) in many parts of the world would be more important than climate worries. After all, the fact that "climate changes" is an unsurprising truism, and a fact humans have adapted to throughout our existence.


On a domestic scale, one would think that slow economic growth, persistently high unemployment and historic low levels of labor participation, the failure of our public school systems (outside of the richest suburbs), and the imminent implosion of our health insurance and health care systems would be higher policy priorities than the Quixotic and fundamentally egomaniacal quest for humans to change (or stop changing) the climate of our planet. After all, there are no demonstrable negative effects of moderate temperature increases so far — increases for which science still does not have a good, coherent explanation and which likely have little human causation. (No alarmist model can explain the last 15 years of non-warming in the presence of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide levels.)Scissors-32x32.png
